  1. it didn't work.. i commented out that line, but it didn't change anything. DVD drives still stop working after about 15mins into it. and i know that the drives are fine as i can use them just fine in XP..
  2. just to confirm.. i should delete : "# Entry for /dev/sdb6 : UUID=9d67377f-aeba-4844-8b28-326e7673ba60 /home ext3 relatime 1 2 /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0" sorry, this is all baby steps for me.. thanks for helping everyone. also, how do i "comment out"??
  3. daniewicz: YES there was a CD in the tray scarecrow: I will delete "iocharset=utf8" from my fstab when i get home tonight after work. Just to confirm, i ONLY need to remove "iocharset=utf8" and leave everything else exactly the way it is.. right?? thanks
  4. I think i might have taken on something too big for me. I'm really not a computer person, i'm in medical field but i love learning about computers so i decided to take up linux, but its turning out very difficult as i don't understand half the things.. lol This is my fstab: # Entry for /dev/sdb1 : UUID=3f566196-e918-43c7-8530-32d36e6faeb5 / ext3 relatime 1 1 # Entry for /dev/sdb6 : UUID=9d67377f-aeba-4844-8b28-326e7673ba60 /home ext3 relatime 1 2 /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0 # Entry for /dev/sda1 : UUID=5A9819F49819CEFF /mnt/win_c ntfs-3g defaults,umask=000 0 0 # Entry for /dev/sda2 : UUID=7A70C1E870C1AB69 /mnt/win_d ntfs-3g defaults,umask=000 0 0 # Entry for /dev/sda3 : UUID=60F8E79BF8E76DAA /mnt/win_e ntfs-3g defaults,umask=000 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 none /tmp tmpfs defaults 0 0 # Entry for /dev/sdb5 : UUID=fdd6eba0-1a6d-4c41-99bf-c2ee4d1facab swap swap defaults 0 0 and this is what i get when i type in mount /media/cdrom in terminal: [am@localhost ~]$ mount /media/cdrom mount: I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified [am@localhost ~]$ CB
  5. WELL.. i think my issue was/is bigger then just draksnapshot. I uninstalled draksnapshot and ofcourse i don't get the message saying draksnapshot has crashed anymore.. but both of my CD/DVD drives don't work after about 15 mins of logging in. I can still physically open them, but the drives won't read or write anything. So i think the root issue of my problem was/is something different then just a bug in draksnapshot. Anyone has any clues?? i don't even know where to start. i can still read/write using my CD/DVD drives as long as i restart my computer and do it right away. Regards, CB
  6. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my stupid question. I uninstalled draksnapshot and everything is working great. Is it necessary to install something else which would do the job draksnapshot did or would it be okay if i just leave it as is? Thanks Scarecrow CB
  7. I'm a total noob to linux and trying to stick with it. I love Mandriva, its worked amazingly for me for the last month or so but recently starting few days ago i started getting this message: The "draksnapshot-applet" program has crashed with the following error: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.Hal was not provided by any .service files standalone::bug_handler() called from /usr/bin/draksnapshot-applet:168 it happens about 15mins after i log in EVERYTIME. I've tried to seach the forums and tried googling but i have no idea what to do. In one of the posts someone mentioned that its a known bug and don't use HAL and use something else.. i don't know how to do that ;( what do i do? how do i use something else? what do i use?? i even tried reinstalling everything. I was running KDE first so i reformated and am using GNOME but its still crashing everytime after about 15mins or so. Is this a hardware problem? software problem? i don't know what to do.. Mandriva Linux Release 2009.1 (pauillac) Kernel Linux Gnome 2.26.1 Hardware Memory: 3GiB (eventhough its 4g, it shows as 3 g) Processor 0: AMD athlon 64 X2 dual core processor 6000+ Processor 1: AMD athlon 64 X2 dual core processor 6000+ Available disk space : 1287.4 GB
